Unity Candle Songs

Updated on June 17, 2013

Best Unity Candle Songs: Songs to Play During the Unity Candle Ceremony

One of the most important songs in a wedding ceremony is the unity candle song. The unity candle symbolizes the joining of two families and the joining of a man and woman as the fire from two separate candles join to create a single flame on the unity candle.

Brides-to-Be often spend hours trying to decide on the perfect unity candle song that will radiate the eternal bond that takes place with the lighting of the unity candle. There's no perfect song for the same to brides. When choosing the Unity Candle song consider a song that touches your heart and has a meaning related to eternity. Something that sings of eternal love and a lasting bond between you and your husband-to-be.

When I Said I Do - Unity Candle Song #1

'When I Said I Do' is a great song to play during the unity candle ceremony because it tells the man and woman's point of view when they said their vows. Portraying the love that was sealed with two single words just like the binding of melting candle wax from the unity candle.

You can find 'When I Said I Do' along with 23 other weddings songs to use at your wedding on The Ultimate Wedding Collection.

Me and You - Unity Candle Song #2

Me and You, by Kenny Chesney, has got to be one of the best unity candles songs there are. With lyrics about how much he loves her, how it was destiny that they become one, and how perfect they are. Me and You is all about love and being together for eternity which is also what the unity candle symbolizes.

Me and You is available on Kenny Chesney's album 'Me and You'

I Do (Cherish You) - Unity Candle Song #3

I Do (Cherish You) by 98 Degrees is great song for the unity candle ceremony because he sings of how much he loves her and will for the rest of his life. Since the unity candle signifies eternity, it would only make since they song would go perfectly.

I Do (Cherish You) was originally recorded by 98 Degrees and was later recorded by Mark Wills in a country version, though 98 Degrees is more instrumental and more appropriate for the occasion.

Because You Loved Me - Unity Candle Song #5

Another great unity candle song is Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion. In Because You Loved Me Celine Dion sings about how she made it through the good times and the bad times because of how much he loved her. This is also a great First Dance song and Father-Daughter Dance song.

Just listening to this song brings tears to my eyes thinking about my husband and about my Daddy!

      Love the Unity Candle tradition (we have the Mothers of the Bride & Groom light it), so we never had these songs. Really really like this lens though!

      This is a terrific lens of love songs filled with meaning. "I Do" means "I Will" for a lifetime. One of my favorites is "We've Only Just Begun", it was part of my wedding over 34 years ago.

      Angel Blessings to you :)
